Only the sixth federal judge to be impeached and removed from office by the United States Senate, Alcee Hastings somehow won election to Congress and has stayed there for 25 years!

Of course, his behavior never changed. At one point, a staffer of Congressman Hastings accused him of aggressive, unwanted sexual advances and sued him for it. Can you guess who bailed him out?

Surprise, it was you – the hardworking American taxpayer! To the tune of $220,000. With his mounting legal fees, Hastings is considered the poorest Member of Congress. The Center for Responsive Politics estimated his 2010 net worth at −$4,732,002.
